Ever felt like there are 1,001 things to do on a game’s development – in addition to running a team, the business, and marketing? Dan talks about previous development woes, and how by inadvertently hiring a full-time producer everything flipped around and the team became a well-oiled machine. Taking a deeper look at the Q.U.B.E. 2 development process and comparing it to the “make-it-up-as-we-go-along” Q.U.B.E. 1 process, attendees will gain insights into the importance of having a producer onboard even on the smallest teams.
